WordPress 2.7.1 is out now

The first maintenance release for the generally quite spiffy and wonderful WordPress 2.7 is now available. If you’re already using 2.7, you should get a notification on your Dashboard, complete with a link which will do the upgrade quickly and painlessly. If you’ve been holding off from upgrading to the 2.7 series, now would be as good a time as any. And once you’ve upgraded by the traditional manual method (or by a script, if you prefer that kind of thing), you’ll never have to do that again.

My upgrade was done in a matter of seconds – even quicker than it would have been using the script I previously relied on.

More information and a link to details of what’s been tweaked and twiddled are available on the WordPress Development Blog.
